Alcohol Question

Recommended Posts

So we are thinking of having our ceremony around 1 or 2 and a meal around 4pm. We want to save money with the alcohol so we are going to buy it ourselves and then hire a bartender (were allowed to do this at our site) So my question is, would it be okay for us to just buy Beer (maybe 2 types) 1 red and 1 white wine and then just serve an alcohol based punch?

I cant see a lot of people wanting hard alcohol in the afternoon and this would be a huge SAVINGS for us! So what do you think? Does that sound okay? Oh ya, and we are having about 60 people.shots.gif

Well, I'm not a beer drinker. I only drink mixed drinks. BUT if your reception is at 4:00, how long are you planning on having your reception, because people may want to drink as the night goes on.

I think it would be acceptable. However, if you can splurge a little I'd have a couple other options like maybe have a vodka and rum option or something like that.

I wouldnt do the beer I would do just a signature alcohol drink and save that way. The rest would be juice. I think that it is too early to be drinking heavily and 4 to 10 is ALOT OF liquor.

I disagree - I would definitely keep the beer because we all know guys love beer and a lot of them won't drink anything else. That's my experience anyways...

I think it's ok to limit what you serve, but I would definitely keep a beer option, red & white wine & try to have a vodka/rum option. As far as it being too early to drink...umm, last I checked, as long as it was 11:30 am - drinking happens! And, even though people have to go to work the next day, I don't think that will hinder the drinking for most ppl - it's a wedding! Just my opinion :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
